Question about Peel Away
Also lightly sand the primer coat with 220 grit paper for best results.
Thanks for the advice. We have been doing as you suggested -- rinsing, neutralizing, then scrubbing down again with water and steel wool. We haven't started sanding yet, but now I know exactly what to do when we get there. We will be using Benjamin Moore Fresh Start (100% acrylic primer as per the instructions) and Benjamin Moore paint (I wouldn't use anything else). Thanks again for your input!
One more tip, get some tack cloths from your paint store. Be sure to dust off before priming. After lightly sanding the prime coat (220 grit) and dusting, use the tack cloths to remove any remaing dust or particles.
Peel Away 7 is ph 7 and is for use on more modern types of paint.
You can buy a tester kit with little pots of 1 and 7 so that you can determine which is right for the job you have to do.
Peel Away 1 is effective but is nasty, caustic stuff. You need to protect your hands with gloves or you will get a chemical burn. The stripped surface must be neutralised with vinegar or the solution provided before you can repaint. So you only use the type 1 formula when you really have to i.e. when stripping very old types of paint.
